Joel Del Rosario

 Joel Del Rosario

“His clean, polished guitar playing is in itself a force of nature” Kyrby Raine (Ink 19)
With a music career spanning over two decades, guitarist and songwriter, Joel Del Rosario has just about touched every genre of music from: Classical, Jazz, Hip Hop, and Southern Gospel. Classically trained in Viola, Joel studied, performed, as second chair in the San Francisco School of the Arts Orchestra. Though winning several competitions with the renowned SOTA orchestra, he felt the pull to venture into the world of jazz, which began his love affair with the genre, and would later envelop a majority of his music career.

His passion for the guitar however was born from tragedy. Experiencing the loss of his mother through breast cancer at 11, he sought solace and peace through playing guitar. It was during those quiet moments in the dark: contemplating, practicing and developing an intimate relationship with his instrument that the budding guitarist developed his own guitar voice.
Through the mentorship of Robyn Kazmarcyk, (and later Elroy Jones who taught guitar virtuoso Stanley Jordan) Joel went on to pursue jazz fully and later received the Stan Getz Jazz Scholarship to attend the prestigious Stanford University Jazz camp during high school. Empowered by these positive experiences, he has gone on to work, write music for, and or co-write music for various artists and record labels
